Mingus– A series by Vicke Lindstrand
We at Orrefors are proud to still be making and selling Vicke Lindstrand’s martini pitcher Mingus. Mouth-blown in Småland since 1934. A design classic that has won several design awards and is a part of the standing exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Viktor (Vicke) Lindstrand (1904–1983) is one of Orrefors’s greatest legends, and has worked with big names such as Simon Gate and Edward Hald. Lindstrand was the rst to introduce mould-blown glass, which allows the most curvaceous shapes, and he also further developed the graal technique. His works were a hit at the Stockholm Exhibition in 1930 and the New York World’s Fair in 1939, which featured giant glass monuments.
